Luxury Lodge Tucked Between Blue River & Mountain Views – A Haven for Families

Once our family decided to buy in Breckenridge, we hit the ground running. We searched for two years to find the perfect year-round lodge close to town but immersed in nature.

A couple of places came close; most just didn’t have everything we were looking for.

Eventually, after a heated family debate, we decided our best option was not to buy our dream lodge after all, but build it.

And so Cold Water Creek Lodge was born – a 5-bedroom family-friendly lodge just 5 miles from Breckenridge.

Building our ideal place gave us (and our guests!) two BIG benefits.

THE BEST PIECE OF LAND IN BRECKENRIDGE

Cold Water Creek Lodge sits on 13 acres of riverfront property caught between stunning views of the Quandary Peak out the front door, and Red Mountain and the Blue River out the back door. Wildlife sightings – elk, beaver, moose, deer – are common. You’ll forget you’re only 5 miles from town.

Here, you can fall asleep to the rush of water over rocks, and wake to morning coffee with a view of the mountain and deer grazing along the riverbank.

You can step out the back door and be ten feet from fly fishing in the river’s cold and pristine waters. Out front door, and you’re in prime hiking territory with Summit County’s best trail – the McCullough Gulch Trail – winding through the property.

We installed two hot-tub and fire-pit areas (in both the front and back of the lodge) for your family’s own private après-ski and full enjoyment of the magnificent scenery through all four seasons.

In winter, seven world-class resorts are within an hour drive. Even better, WE PROVIDE TWO LIFT TICKETS A DAY as part of your stay. (Inquire for more info.)

Warm your ski boots in our boot warmer for toasty toes.

And after you return from the slopes, defrost in the 8-person hot tub with views of snow-capped Quandary Peak. Or duck inside and enjoy the heat from the floor-to-ceiling fireplace in the Great Room.

In fall, the whole scene bursts into yellow as the aspens play out their autumn drama. Light a crackling fire at the fire-pit, gather around the Adirondack chairs and enjoy the crisp Colorado air.

In spring and summer, the mountains present endless activities and deep green vistas.

A FAMILY-FRIENDLY PLACE

Building also meant we could design the house, from the ground up, to be ideal for families. We love hosting multigenerational family reunions or multiple families traveling together.

Kids and dogs find plenty of space to run around, and the private and paved road with few cars keeps them safe (and also means quick, traffic-free trips into town.)

We provide pack-n-play and a high chair, too.

We even gave kids their own section of the house, called the Bunkhouse, with a gameroom where they can decamp together for video games on the LCD flatscreen with Nintendo Wii, movies on Netflix, or a game of air hockey. Add a few mugs of hot chocolate and you’ll have some happy kids.

The attached bunkroom with three bunk beds provide a summer camp setting for telling stories by flashlight past bedtime. They get their own attached bathroom, too, and in the gameroom, there’s also a couch that folds out into a queen bed.

The living areas are open to each other, and cozy for conversation, shared meals, and poker in the adult cardroom. The windows in the Great Room overlook a spectacular view of Quandary Peak.

The kitchen has high-end GE Monogram appliances (including 2 dishwashers!), granite countertops, and heated floors made from reclaimed pine found right here in Summit County. Flip some pancakes and serve them at the granite breakfast bar!

EVERYONE GETS A GREAT BEDROOM

No need to rush to claim the best bedrooms when you arrive. We made them all pretty great. All have their own private, attached bathroom. If you’ve traveled as a group before, you know how essential that is!

We also provide cozy comforters and butter soft sheets and flatscreen TVs in every single room.

We’d love to help make your Breckenridge getaway wonderful, so let us know what we can do.

There is no slow season at Cold Water Creek, thanks to our year-round amenities and activities. We encourage you to book today, using the yellow “Book It” button to the right. Thanks!

All expectations surpassed!

  • 5 of 5
I shopped long and careful for our 10 adult skiers group's stay for the Hartford Ski Spectacular at Breckenridge. When I found the Cold Water Creek Lodge and read all the "Wows" and glowing reviews from families and groups who had stayed there, my expectations were high.

Cold Water Creek Lodge met every expectation...and more...it is perfect! It is "rustic, meet elegance." Yes the Lodge is elegant, it is also comfortable and feels like home. After wonderful long days at Spectacular clinics, we ate family style at the big table together. Then continued the evening in the family room watching Warren Miller movies and playing games or soaking in the hot tubs.

The designated cooks in our group prepared our evening meals in the Lodge kitchen. Which was like cooking in a gourmet's kitchen...everything we needed was there. Two ovens, two dishwashers and two refrigerator/freezers! And every appliance and utensil you might need.

The view from any and every window was fabulous. The boot & glove warmer and all the cubbies was oh-so-appreciated when up to 10 of us left in the morning to ski.

O.k., everyone loved the lodge. But the outdoors was just as wonderful! The McCullough Gulch Trail starts right out the front door. I took Lucy, my "Tramp" look alike for morning and afternoon walks...and even a full moon walk. We left a couple of snow angels next to the trail.

We arrived at the Cold Water Creek Lodge as a group of friends, and left as family. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We are already planning for next year's Spectacular.

Beautiful lodge, great location, stunning views!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a nice time staying here with our beloved dog who, by the way, has discovered that 6.5 inches of snow is tons of fun! The lodge is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and well located with stunning mountain and river views (the river is right off the back deck). There are lovely hikes just out the front door and lots of beautiful day drives to explore. There are plenty of things to do even if you are traveling with your dog.

I have to mention the kitchen, awesome! It is very well equipped and the pantry is stocked with all of the basics.

The rich family history behind the creation of this lodge is very nice, too, thanks for sharing, Ronchetti Family.

Highly recommended!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a family reunion of sorts with 15 people staying at the house and skiing. 4 familes with 8 adults and seven kids. Everything was great. We enjoyed being far enough outside Breckenridge to enjoy the quiet and close enough to get the slopes in a jiffy. The rooms for the adults are in a different part of the house so the kids could play and be loud without disturbing the rest of the group. There six bathrooms and we used them and never ran out of hot water. The owners were nice, responsive, and helpful. The medallions were great for skiing (a considerable extra with lift tickets costing $130).

Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5
We decided to take our parents to Colorado for their 50th wedding anniversary. Their 4 grown kids, 4 grand kids, 1 great grand kid, and their beloved dog. After a lot of looking we chose this beautiful lodge. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this house... It exceeded our expectations! First and foremost it is immaculate and well appointed. Starting with the entry there is certainly enough space to store all of everyone's gear. A large mud/coat room off the garage houses a boot/ glove warmer , hooks for coats and lots of cubbies. Enter into the main part of the house- spectacular! Kitchen so large and has EVERYTHING we needed. Large family room with fireplace and comfortable leather furniture. We really liked the master bed and bath right on the main floor for our parents so they didn't have to climb steps. All other bedrooms with their own bath were superb... Plenty of room in the huge showers (with rock floors that made you feel as though you were in a spa. The kids had their own "wing" of the house with bunk beds, bath and game room. We loved the hot tub in the evening with the snow falling. It is just a beautiful place. Beautiful views and quiet setting away from town.
Thank you so much to the owners for sharing your home with our family to make a memorable vacation.

Ten of us went on a ski trip to Colorado. We stayed at Cold Water Creek Lodge for a week and it was just awesome! The lodge is situated about 15 min away from Breckenridge ski resort. We skied at Breck, Keystone, Vail and Beaver Creek during our stay.

The place was exactly what we expected and more. We enjoyed the hot tub almost everyday after skiing. We had a problem with a garage door and Mark, the owner responded right away.

All of us had a great time.
Thank you Mark and Kristy. We'll be back!

Location

From the Owner

After looking all over Summit County and finding some great locations we settled on the McCullough Gulch Reserve to build our Colorado vacation home. The Blue River is literally ten feet behind the house. The best hikes in Summit county border the property. With 13 acres you can stretch out and get away from it all with Breck just a few miles down the road. As great as many areas around Breck are you will not beat this location or this house. The views are classic stunning Colorado with all the conveniences of being right next to one of the best ski towns in North America.
